About Me

Hey and thanks for stopping by, I am Brittany Fry!
I am the blogger of The 26th of August.
My husband (love the sound of that!) and I just tied the knot June 15th, 2013
but we were high school sweet hearts since my freshman year.

We thought we knew everything about each other after dating for 7.9 years until we tied the knot and moved in together in our first home! aahhh yea not so much....
every day we are learning new things about each other
some good, some annoying
but at the beginning of each morning and the end of each night we thank our lucky stars that we are finally married to our best friends and we wouldn't have it any other way.

26th of August?
August 26th, 2005
is the day we started dating
the day my life was changed forever
the day I became Anthony Fry's first girl friend
the day I told myself I was going to marry this boy one day
the day our lives changed forever!

I saw Anthony for the 1st time on August 18, 2005 at our County Fair
I had just sold my market hog and Anthony was helping in the pig barn with loading pigs up to go to the sale barn. I was crying my eyes out with my best friend because I sad my pig was gone.
Luckily this was not our first official time to meet..
the next day August 19th my best friend, Aubrey, & Anthony's friend Toby formally introduced us.
We were shy, awkward, quiet, did I mention shy?
but that night Anthony asked me to go to truck & tractor pulls with him
I was hooked then...

We officially became boyfriend and girlfriend August 26th
at the first home football game
From then on out we were inseparable
we quickly grew out of our shy awkward stages and became besties!

we love everything outdoors related...
hunting, fishing, camping
hiking, boating
campfires, shooting guns
spending time with our Family (hey it's our one big family now!)

I work a Monday-Friday office job and the rest of the time I am enjoying life as a wifey, getting into DIY projects on our new home.
I am addicted to: country music, Pinterest, mason jars, drinking wine, Justin Moore, reading Nicholas Sparks books, taking pictures & my number one biggest addiction is cowboy boots!!


  1. I loooove country music! Girl after my own heart :)

  2. Love this! We got married only a couple of weeks after y'all! Our date was June 29th. :) Love that dress!

    By the way, I tried emailing a response back to you but your email wasn't attached so that I could respond. Make sure you have an email attached! I think you change that through your blogger settings. :)


  3. You'll be celebrating one year of marriage when I'm celebrating one day! Your pictures are so pretty! And I love your blog name and the reason behind it!

  4. You're blog is adorable. I found you from the photo a day link up. I clicked on it because of your blog title... it's my brother's birthday so I wanted to know the significance of it! Love it!
    I'm a newlywed too... we got married a little less than a month after you!

  5. Hi Brittany! I found you on the photo a day link up. I love the blog title and couldn't help but wonder the meaning behind it. At first I assumed wedding day, but the day you started dating is a whole lot cuter. I'm your newest follower :)


  6. August 26th is my wedding anniversary. That day means a lot to me. August 18th is also my birthday.

  7. Just found your blog from the Weekending link up. My son's (first!) birthday is August 26th, and I was so intrigued by your blog title I just had to click on over here and visit! My husband and I are high school sweethearts too. Happy almost anniversary of when you started dating!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Feel free to leave me a comment and I will get back to you. Hope you have a great day!
